Museum at Home: bubble snakes
- Empty plastic beverage bottle
- Old sock
- Bubble solution
- String or rubber band
- For larger socks, cut off the heel of the sock, leaving the toe end of the sock. Smaller, kid-sized socks can be left in one piece.
- Using a pair of scissors, cut the bottom of a plastic beverage bottle.
- Slide the sock over the open end of the bottle, and secure with string or a rubber band for small children.
- Pour bubble solution into a small container.
- Dip the sock end of the water bottle into the bubble solution.
- Hold the open end of the bottle up to your mouth and blow!
- Kids can experiment with blowing through the bottle quickly or slowly, and using big or small breaths.
Becky’s Bubble Solution!
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 1/3 dish soap
- Pour warm water into a jar, large enough to hold 3 cups of liquid. I use a quart mason jar.
- Add corn syrup and dish soap to the jar.
- Gently stir the mixture.
- The bubble solution works best if it can sit overnight, but it’s not required.
